Backpackers Hostel in Inverness, Scotland need a new all rounder


We are currently looking for a new member of staff to join our team in Inverness as a hostel all rounder

We are a medium size hostel and pride ourselves on creating a homely & friendly atmosphere where people get to know each other and really enjoy their stay with us. Inverness is a great town and really buzzes during the season. If you want to explore and get to know Scotland it is the only place to base yourself.

The successful applicant would ideally be a backpacker with a passion for hostels and have experience working in them. People with experience in a comparable customer service role are also welcome to apply. It’s a lot of fun and very much a hands on role involving a lot of cleaning, so you must be prepared to get your hands dirty and get stuck in. You will be working in a small team with three others - Irish, New Zealand and Hungarian - so team skills are also required. English to a very high standard is a must as you will be taking bookings by phone.

The position is available now and you will be working a minimum of 37 hours per week on a rotating schedule. The job requires you to be flexible with working hours and be available days, evening and weekends. It is a live in role sharing a staff room and accommodation will be deducted weekly from you wage. You will receive training on our booking software and information about the local area to provide a suitable service to our guests.

It’s important that you can commit to 6 months minimum as we don’t want someone leaving in the middle of the high season. Please take this on board before you apply

If you’re interested in this position please email your CV, recent picture and most importantly a cover letter stating why we should choose you to join our team.
